High Fidelity

Elvis Costello

    F               E
Some things you never get used to
Am                     D/F#       G       
Even though you're feeling like another man
        Bm 
There's nothing that he can do for you
   Dm                  E
To shut me away as you walk through
Am                       D
Lovers laughing in their amateur hour
Am                   D
Holding hands in the corridors of power
Am                   F             E
Even though I'm with somebody else right now

[Chorus]
A     A/G     D/F#
High        fidelity
D
Can you hear me? 
E
Can you hear me?
D       E
Can you hear me?
A     A/G     D/F#
High        fidelity
D
Can you hear me? 
E
Can you hear me?
F            G
Can you hear me?

C
There's a new kind of dedication
Maybe you'll find it down the tunnel
Maybe I got above my station
Maybe you're only changing channel

F                    E
Even though you're nowhere near me
Am                  D/F#        G
And I know you kiss him so sincerely now
Bm
Even though the signal's indistinct
        Dm                  E
And you worry what silly people think
    Am                 D
Who just can't wait to feel so frozen out
Am                   D             Am
I bet he thinks that he was chosen out of millions
F                 E
I suppose he'll never know about

[Chorus]
